2.  Established in 1931, the U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard is the official

Joint Armed Forces, Navy, and public ceremonies in the capital of our nation 
and around the world.
Members of the Navy Ceremonial Guard participate in some the most prestigious 
ceremonies including presidential inaugurations and arrival ceremonies for 
foreign officials in our nation.  In addition, the Navy Ceremonial Guard 
conducts all services for Navy personnel and dependents buried in the 
Arlington National Cemetery.

regularly represent the Navy in public events across the country.

the U.S. Navy, both on and off-duty.

(a) and the following additional requirements:

message to the command with application requirements.  Once the application 
package is received and reviewed, a telephone interview will be arranged with

      The FBI has contacted a Navy veteran, Richard Osthoff, as part of an investigation into embattled Rep. George Santos and a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Osthoff's sick service dog. Osthoff confirmed the call from the FBI, and sources familiar with the matter confirmed the nature of the investigation -- which adds to the growing list of legal issues and controversies Santos, R-N.Y., is facing.
